Founding members of JETBOY issue the following statement regarding the departure of their original vocalist, Mickey Finn, and their future plans:
"Parting ways with a family member is never easy, and believe us, it was a bitter
pill to swallow.
"When Mickey made his plans known that he would not be participating in the European tour or the future of JETBOY, the rest of the band were forced into action. As a group, JETBOY did not want to let fans down and back out of their first European tour. That being said, we immediately began the search.
"We are incredibly happy to have someone as professional as D.K Revelle to step in on a months notice and front the European tour.
"D.K. Revelle has a long pedigree, having worked coast to coast honing his craft. Most recently, D.K. fronted the band BEGGARS BALL in Hollywood, California (2005-2008) recording two albums. D.K. was also the vocalist in the New York-based act FEELS LIKE FICTION, under the management of the famous Bill Aucoin (KISS, BILLY IDOL).
"D.K. Revelle is the consummate front man, bringing not only professionalism and talent to the table, but a filthy-dirty rock and roll style that JETBOY fans have come to expect from the band.
"From the moment we began to jam, the chemistry was undeniable. When something works, it's effortless and it just makes sense.
"We're excited to bring JETBOY to our European fans for the first time in the band's history, and to tell you the truth, you are getting us at what feels like the best moment in JETBOY's storied career. This band is primed and ready to bring rock and roll from the gutters of California to the other side of the pond.
Time to turn it up and play some rock n roll in Europe, JETBOY style !
JETBOY have inked a deal with Demon Doll Records to get to the heart of the matter that makes JETBOY one of the best hook and
look bands to ever set sail from San Francisco into your living rooms.
"Now and Then" pushes the pedal down with digitally re-mastered versions of their biggest hits, "Feel The Shake", "Make Some Noise" and "Snakebite" from their 1988 Billboard Charting debut "Feel The Shake" as well as
"Stomp It (Down To The Bricks), "Evil", "Heavy Chevy" and "Bullfrog
Pond" from their 1990 Sophomore Release "Damned Nation". This is the first time JETBOY has ever offered a release of this kind.
14 songs encompass the disc that will bring you back to the glory days and
feed your appetite with every great song the band has ever put to tape.
From the early days of '86 to the new hit sensations of '88. From
MTV-Headbangers Ball cover boys to the resurrection of Mickey, Billy,
Fernie and the boys in 2010 - we've got all the good stuff covered! And
if that weren't enough, we got a new, never released bonus track, "Dying Inside" that will make your head spin!! This is a must have for every Glam & Sleaze fan on the planet.
We think it's safe to say that JETBOY have left their mark on the Glam
& Sleaze scene for generations to come and “Now and Then” is your
total package into that world that we still believe is one of the
greatest eras of Rock 'N' Roll History! So get out the hairspray, crack
open the Jack Daniels, light that cigarette and get ready for the JETBOY
party that never ends!
